Qualitative case studies of those who have recovered due to the purpose and meaning the have in their lives.  Whether that be devotion to their health maintenance, their spiritual practice, altruistic activities within society, or the work that they do.

I would want to measure their activities during self-isolation and/or recovery, how/if they managed their physical and mental well-being, and how/if their relationships impacted their recovery.

Upload or share a link to this resource/message/source of information to share it with others.

This is the best case study I've found so far:

Did this resource motivate you to change your behaviors?

  • Yes

In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?

A shift in mindset surrounding illness and recovery. That it is the connections we have with others during times of crisis or illness, and the care that we receive during this time, that correlates with our motivation to recover and resume our contribution and service to society.

Did you share this information with your network?

  • No

In what ways did you share this information?

Not as yet...I'm waiting for more case studies to explore my theory of recovery based on meaning and purpose one has. I am currently sharing positive videos and memes of those in isolation to keep my network uplifted.   

Where are you getting information around COVID-19?

  • Local Government
  • National Government

What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?

Personal case studies of recovery.

What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?

Thank you for this, Ashlie. Curious if you had seen this submission: From "Shelter" to "Sanctuary" - Using the Power of Interior Design to Create Refuge in Uncertain Times . Perhaps there is an opportunity to collaborate or share wisdom here?
